Getting There and Accomodation Las Palmas


The WOMEX team will approach all selected Showcases regarding accommmodation for artists and crew, our local partners are currently working on options for them.

Getting there

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has an international airport which is just a 25 km ride form the city centre and the WOMEX venues.

  • Buses from the airport to the city centre run every 20 minutes, cost only €2,30 and take 20 minuntes.
  • If you are in a hurry cab will cost you 30-40 Euros and take 15 minutes only.
  • Also consider renting a car right at the airport (You will need a European or international driver's license).

Before you book flights and accommodation individually, check tourist packages available in your home country.

Getting there from around the world

Numerous airlines travel to Gran Canaria every day. Check the usual agencies and online services to get a good connection from your location. In some cases a flight to neighbouring Tenerife might be an even better deal. In that case there are ferries as well as local flights multiple times per day. (This might also be interesting for you if you fancy a holiday on one of the neighbouring islands after WOMEX.)

Getting there from the African continent

In addition to the above options, check Binter Airlines for flight offers from North and West Africa.

Tourist Packages

As Las Palmas is a tourist destination, travel agencies might offer package deals to get to and stay in Gran Canaria which outperform individual bookings of flights and hotel. Check with agencies in your home country to compare the costs.

More Options

Obviously you can find hotels on various booking sites online. If hotels maybe aren't your thing, Las Palmas also has many other accommodation options, including hostels and AirBnB.

Note: If you rent a car, hotels and rooms in the south of the island might also be attractive for you - the south-to-north motorway is a convenient ride.
